Fresh pa din! Binan Rep. Len Alonte spends all day and all night on the 2019 budget

Sep 21, 2018 @ 12:08

Perhaps no other legislation is as important as the government’s annual budget.

This could be why Binan Rep. Len Alonte and her colleagues spent all day and all night laboring on the proposed 2019 general appropriations act.

The House of Representatives started tackling the measure in the plenary at 10 am on Wednesday, September 19.

Midnight came and passed, and as of 1 am on September 20, the deliberations were still ongoing, and Alonte was still on the floor.

Alonte took a photo of her in the session hall with two other colleagues as they worked during the late hours and posted it on Instagram.

To be fair to them, the lack of sleep wasn’t showing as they all still looked fresh and were able to smile widely.

Thankfully, only one budget bill is usually approved per year!

“First day of the 2019 Budget deliberations started at 10am Wednesday, September19 and still ongoing at this time past 1am of Thursday, September 20, 2018.??,” Alonte posted.
